Anyone bought anything from ?

Hi All.. Im wondering if anyone has used to buy anything online ? They have the FX1000 at a really great price..

Sony HDR-FX1000E PAL Handycam HDV Camcorder, HDRFX1000E, DvStage

They are in USA and are offering the PAL version of the camera also which im a little curious about.. I would like the PAL version but combined with the fact they are 20% or so cheaper than even the cheapest deal i can find anywhere else its got me wondering if its all above board.. Ive seen online resellers claim to have brand new stock and sell refurbished units etc Im also concerned about buying online with no ebay or Pay Pal insurance, if they dont end up sending the item you are basically screwed.

Keen to hear of any experiences anyone has had.

EDIT: i may have just found the answer myself... They use some company called liberty reserve for the payment method which is based out of costa rica and the terms and conditions are pretty shocking.. seem to spell out you stand a good chance of getting ripped of with no rights at all.. If it was an isoltaed site it wouldnt be so decpetive but when the link sits on credible "best deal" websites its very misleading.

On rare occasion you can find reputable resellers selling lower than B&H prices, but not by muich. Use them as a benchmark. The Fx1000 is $2999 currently at B&H. Any price much lower than that would be suspicious to me.
